Rescuers searching for 12 missing boys and their football coach say they have all been found alive, officials in Thailand have said. That also begets the question: "If the dives are hard then supply will be hard, but the risk of trying to dive them out is also exponentially greater".

He says that "if the dives are hard then supply will be hard, but the risk of trying to dive them out is also exponentially greater".

"Thai Navy SEALs have found all 13 with signs of life", Narongsak Osottanakorn, the governor of the Chiang Rai province, told reporters.

They disappeared when flooding trapped them after entering the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai on June 23.

Rescue divers had been working desperately for nine days to save the kid soccer players - who range in age from 11 to 16 years old - and their 25-year-old coach.

Divers have been stymied again and again by muddy water rising filing sections of the cave and forcing them to withdraw for safety reasons.

Progress has been slowed as divers need to widen parts of a narrow 100 metre stretch - with sharp bends - that they were unable to pass through without their air cylinders becoming jammed.

A group of six AFP Specialist Response Group members who have search and rescue and cave diving skills, arrived at Tham Luang-Khun Nam Nang Non Cave early on Sunday.

Scores of divers - including foreign experts - have been sent into the cave with hundreds of oxygen tanks, establishing a base camp inside the chambers over the weekend.

Pumping out water hasn't solved the problem, so the attention has focused on finding shafts on the mountainside that might serve as a back door to the blocked-off areas where the missing may be sheltering.

The clouds parted yesterday and, with the help of water pumps, divers were able to establish a forward operating base inside the twisting chambers, raising hopes that the "Boars", as the football team is known, could be located soon.

An official Australian group has now followed a USA military team, British cave experts, Chinese lifesaving responders and several other volunteer groups from various countries. "If we manage to though the cave walls, then luck is on our side", the governor Narongsak said.
